Our strong financial and operating performance reflects our approach to sales and our customers, the strength and determination of our people, a deeply embedded focus on operational excellence with its inherent cost controls, and careful consideration of the environmental and social impact of our actions ― now and for the future.

Excellence: the ATCO Heart and Mind

“Going far beyond the call of duty. Doing more than others expect. This is what excellence is all about. It comes from striving, maintaining the highest standards, looking after the smallest detail and going the extra mile. Excellence means caring. It means making a special effort to do more.”

R.D. Southern
Founder, ATCO

Our Core Values


Safety is the first consideration in everything we do. We hold a shared belief that safety must direct all our day-to-day priorities and decisions, and we are accountable for understanding and following the health and safety requirements for any work we undertake.


We are honest, ethical and treat others with fairness, dignity and respect. We make good decisions, take personal ownership of tasks, are responsible for our actions and deliver on our commitments.


We are creative, innovative and take a measured approach to opportunities and risk, balanced with a long term perspective. We stay relevant, reward action and learn from failure.


We care about our customers, our employees and their families, our communities and the environment. We seek to understand and care enough to challenge each other.


We work together, share ideas, recognize the contribution of others and learn from our failures and successes. We are clear about our intentions and communicate openly especially when problems or issues arise. We value and encourage diversity and different perspectives. We work together to build strong networks.
